Eintracht, Tigres return for Dallas Cup

The 2011 Dr Pepper Dallas Cup Super Group final between Eintracht Fankfurt (Germany) and Tigres (Mexico) was halted due to lightning in the 65th minute with score tied at 1-1. It was the first time in the Dallas Cup’s 32-year history that a game had to be abandoned.

With the scored tied, the teams were named Super Group co-champions for 2011. Now, both teams will be back in 2012 with a chance at a rematch.

"We are delighted that we can welcome back both teams for 2012 and it certainly will be interesting if they do meet in next year’s competition," said Dallas Cup organizer Gordon Jago.

Dallas Cup officials expect to confirm more Super Group participants next week.
